Training and development tenders can be demanding for a number of reasons. Dependent on the specific training and development tender you may be required to have multiple different insurance certificates as well as policies and key personnel certifications in order to meet the tender requirements. In addition, training and development tenders are generally highly competitive – with many different RTOs and private training consultancies bidding for opportunities. Finally, the bids often require you to have a specific set of qualifications and expertise. These are often highly specialised expertise where it is difficult to find formal accreditation.

Tips for writing winning training and development tenders to the Government and Private Sector in Australia
Remember to remain focused as your write your tender proposal. A tender demands large amounts of information from all parts of your business, from financial sectors to human resource sectors. It is important to be able to procure this information in an effective and timely manner. Whilst doing so it is easy to be distracted and this is where many problems arise for inexperienced tenderers. Remain focused on completing the tender and be on top of any new information you may require to finish the response.
Utilise Win Themes
Many tenderers may not know what a win theme or win strategy is, or perhaps only have a basic understanding of it. A win them addresses the criteria of the tender but then goes beyond it in an attempt to showcase how your business may alleviate some burden off of the procurer’s company. Though there are other types of win themes, being able to demonstrate how your business or organisation can add value on top of the tender criteria is crucial in defeating the competition.
The types of training and development tenders our bid writers have helped our clients win
Technical Skills Training Tenders: These are usually issued by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. We have helped Registered Training Organisations and other training providers to write tenders and bids for the provision of a broad range of technical skills training. This includes for organisations in rural and remote locations.
Health and Safety Training Tenders and Bids: These bids are issued by federal government, state government departments. Contracts are also often issued by large and medium sized corporations which require assistance and service providers for their safety training needs. Safe Work Australia as well as state-based worksafe authorities also issue bids and tenders. We have helped safety training companies write training bids and become appointed to government and private sector companies. This includes to mining companies where we have helped clients tender for and become the sole provider to training services for certain safety qualifications for miners across multiple sites.
IT and Digital Skills Training Tenders: This has always been a critical area for training bids, especially cyber training. However, it has grown even more relevant with the popularity of Artificial Intelligence. We have helped IT training companies as well as a range of Cyber consultancies bid to government departments including the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), the Department of Home Affairs, and other government departments. Of particular importance, is the requirement to develop and deliver simple and easy to understand training to government personnel – particularly in the IT space. We have also helped training organisations write training and development tenders for provision of training services to the Department of Defence.
Tenders for training in customer service and communication skills: We have helped training providers including RTOs and private training providers who specialise in customer service and communication skills to write bids and tenders to government departments and the private sector. Nearly all government departments consider engaging customer service training organisations for their frontline staff from time to time. As a result, when writing bids and tenders, you often need to cover training needs for personnel in remote and regional locations. We work with clients to ensure you put forward a credible and comprehensive plan for servicing Government Departments and other organisations in remote and regional areas.
Cultural Awareness and Indigenous Training Tenders: We have seen these tenders increase in volume over recent years. Many different organisations are issuing tenders for the provision of cultural awareness and Indigenous training. These are popular in both the government and private sector. We have helped indigenous training organisations write bids and tenders to undertake this training. This includes face-to-face training providers as well as online learning platforms.
